especially up in santa rosa, where the numbers are just dropping to a set of car keys. san francisco at 44 and just to revisit the topic with the freeze warnings that will be posted tonight, they'll be posted there tomorrow as well and finally by tuesday morning that we should be out of all of this and that we're expecting the freezing numbers here tonight for the overnight lows again. 27 at livermore and 24 degrees at fairfield and 24 at napa. it is cold out there for them and from 1 to 8 degrees cooler right now than what it was last night and tonight, we should bottom out for them and that they should not be that bad and to help the temperatures drop just a bit for them in santa rosa and in napa to get them down for the clear skies. but by 8:00, they were down to the lower 40s. and for tomorrow, they will need to recover to the near 50- degree range. and so in the daytime, we're bumping up the numbers for them. like they need to go out and that it will not be as cold as it was today. but that's what's happening for them and the low pressure over
california that is moving into the texas panhandle region and the jet stream that divides the cold air from the north to the relatively warm air to the south, allowing all the arctic air up here to plunge all the way down to mexico. as a result, the cold air, they will need to help us with pretty cold tonight. but that's my question to begin to move in for the second half of the week and they will begin slowly to edge that direction tomorrow as the numbers come up just a little bit. expect plenty of sunshine after some lows tonight that could be record lows. slight warming trend that will begin and then they are back to near 60 degrees by midweek. for the daytime highs, miami, sweltering at 82. can you believe that? and coming up for them and that the numbers, they're freezing or below. and it will be very cold. they will be heading out. and the freeze warnings, and it will be 50 degrees for fresno at 49. in the bay area, we'll be looking at numbers near 50 degrees in the south bay.
san mateo gets 49 degrees. campbell at 52 and morgan hill at 51. out in the east bay tomorrow, the numbers will be around walnut creek and danville. and up in napa, it will be the north bay, looking for plenty. and it will be just 51 degrees, up and running for them. if you will be heading up there, you can find 47 degrees for them and the extended forecast. and now they will be covered to the near 60s by thursday. and they will be high and dry all the way up through christmas eve. and that could change and work a long way. it will be a great night for them tomorrow.
